Freightdog Next Kit Release Is.....
« on: June 24, 2007, 02:42:36 pm »
I am pleased to announce that Freightdog Models next kit release will be the much requested Hawker P1154 'Supersonic Harrier'. Mastered and cast by Anigrand Craftsworks, the kit will represent the variant due to go into service with the RAF (that was replaced by the Phantom FGR.2), and will also include clear resin parts for transparencies along with screen printed 'what-if' decals for RAF options by Fantasy Printshop.
Plan is to release the kit at SMW in November, although it is hoped to be able to offer a few kits to what-if SIG members possibly one month earlier, all things going to plan!
Special thanks to Mike Pryce for access to his research to make the the most accurate kit of an aircraft that wasn't built, ever!
Will keep you posted.
Colin

Excellent news, even more so with having Mike Pryce (aka Harrier) on board with the project.

After building the vacform and discovering the various flaws in that one a proper kit to Anigrands standard its certainly one i'm going to be picking up more than one of  :D .

You could always turn the vacform sheet upside down and use it as a paint tray? :dum: Colin

I'll have one!!!  Or maybe two, or three, or.......
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
